Is Automated Testing a Solution for You?

Post by stepin2it » Wed Apr 03, 2013 6:38 am

I’ve worked on many projects in my career. When you work on same project for more than one year you strongly start feeling need of automating some tasks. You start thinking to introduce automation testing on the project if it’s not been considered till now by project management.

One year is enough time for anyone to know the ins and outs of any project. Once you know the project functionality in detail it becomes easier to decide which repetitive tasks need to be automated.

Some testers also get bored doing same repetitive tasks again and again and they strongly start feeling the need of test automation.

Does that mean you should jump into automation testing right away? Definitely not! There are many criteria you need to work on before deciding whether automation is a solution for you.

Your ideas seem to be a bit out of touch with reality.

Every project I have worked on had Automation included from day 1. This allows the Automation to grow with the project and provide effective regression testing.

Totally agree with Ian, integration tests should be there from day 1.
They should be part of the acceptance of the done status of any development task that can't be tested with a unit test.
